A little end of weekend roundup of the news, beginning with big news in the world of barbecue— remember our story a couple of days ago talking about Uncle John’s BBQ taking over the BBQ spot of the new Dat Donut complex on 83rd? Steve Dolinsky tweets that Uncle John’s is actually moving entirely from 69th street to the 83rd and Cottage Grove complex, though not quickly, he suggests. You’re gonna want to keep an eye out in the next few days for whatever Dolinsky does with whatever he just shot down at Dat Donut and Uncle John’s.
• Frog n Snail has a new menu starting tonight which it says is based on customer input, with dishes like duck leg confit pierogi, “Snails Y’All,” a snail ragout with cheese grits, and… a burger. Download the new menu here.

• And last but not least, it’s Coon Feed time again in Delafield, Wisconsin on Saturday. What are we talking about? This.
